7:35 am
bipartisan love that we enjoy wednesday mornings with the two of you. >> i am going to start yelling at you more often. >> that's right. >> let me start with you, the debt deal is now done, what do you think? where are we? >> same place we were before we started nowhere. you know, the economy word is it is still in bad shape the dow went down 266 points, the only thing that is good is the pressure valve has been released now, and we've just sort of to steal the president's term kicked the can down the road toward thanksgiving and drama will begin in october. >> thanksgiving and christmas. >> that's right. >> then we will talk about elections next year it was business as usual. they just did what most politicians usually do, avoid doing the tough decisions and passed on the buck to another day. so we will see. hey, look the ratings will go
7:36 am
up for you guys peter and i will have work to do and it is all a good thing. >> it is not. >> jim and i were talking about it yesterday, the pew poll had an open ended question about what do you thing about washington -- folks in washington over 70% of folks gave seriously negative comments this is not exactly improved people's impression of what goes on in this city and i am kind of reminded when i was a kid i loved mad magazine, and there was alfred remember. >> sure i graduated from the college of wet me worry. >> boy, yeah. >> the one where the guy has buy this magazine or i am going to shoot myself. i mean that is basically what this group is. >> the lesser of two evils in the end is what it felt like. >> that's right. i mean, the deal -- i agree the
7:37 am
deal gets done but at what cost and at what end you know there is a couple points i would make number one if this is the way we are going in the future every time we have a debt increase vote we will have this gun to the head stuff big problem second thing is, it did not instill confidence in the international market certainly not as jim says in the markets here what we need to do now to get this economy going, is have a sense washington is really indeed working to solve the problem and i don't thing we got that far with it. >> well, i think what you always say to people, they don't want to see how the sauce is made they just want to eat the final product that is true to some extent we spent a lot of time focusing on the process we didn't spend a lot of time focusing on the solutions, i mean really the only solution that came out of this was we didn't raise any taxes like the president had wanted to, but that doesn't necessarily mean they won't try again and again and again. so you know to some extent, the
7:38 am
end of this day we really haven't -- all we have done is stop people from spending more money and maybe perhaps stopped the bleeding but we don't know what we are going to do in future to continue this. one thing i can tell you, peter tacked about the pew poll there is anger out there with the voters they are very angry with what they are watching. >> people felt -- >> personal there was nasty these guys couldn't get together and then of course as usual 11th hour they do. the sad thing about this, and i will disagree with jim i think you have got to have a balanced approach revenues on the table this is out of control now and you know the sad thing is, that it seems they were close that there was the gang of six came out with a plan which included revenues and cuts it was a big plan, it wasn't a patch work deal the president and speaker boehner at least at one point seemed close the problem is, the guy is putting a gun to the
7:39 am
head, in a sense the tea party guys jim these were guys that came in and they would have been fine with going over the cliff, without raising the debt -- >> what happened that that bus didn't go in that direction if you will the tea party at the end of the day when the congress was coming in we spoke with at least one tea party caucus member he was like i am not voting with this. in the end it passed what happened? did boehner get to that block to say this has to be done >> i think the tea party was a good thing in some ways because the speaker realized the voters are angry the speaker knows this there is an anger we raised more money to spend more money that is all we have done that is not a good thing rate now the markets you know the bond markets said we had to do two things we had to cut the size of the government, reduce
7:40 am
spending, and we did none of those things with that bill. >> and revenue -- >> that's right peter if you want a balanced approach then we got a balanced approach your guys -- you guys get more money to spend >> i know but jim,. >> in trouble stupid. >> you agree with this, but what is the best way to reduce the deficit and to move -- you need an economy that is growing you need focus on working and paying taxes. >> that's right. >> ideological straight jacket. faa shut down now it is a joke. you know there is a concern about subsidizing rural airports i get that, that is $14 million by shutting this now in the next month it will cost in taxes. >> a billion dollars. >> i know. >> they are fighting over 14 million it is costing us a billion. my problem is i don't disagree we have them on the left they have to get out of that
7:41 am
ideological straight jacket. >> nice moment wanted to get to it but didn't get to it when representative giffords came back to cast her vote. >> at that didn't last long because the rhetoric just went to the roof when they called the republicans a bunch of terrorists. >> i apologize. >> apology accepted. >> over the you. >> thanks guys on this wednesday morning the deal might have been made several issues had to take a back seat what were they coming up next hour, roll call steven dennis will be with us to talk about the unfinished business left for congress to deal with. back after this, fox 5 morning news rolls on this wednesday morning

8:33 am
backseat. steven dennis from roll call what did not get done. the big one is the faa bill the agency has been basically shut down for the last week or so, and both chambers have said we are leaving town for the next five weeks, 75,000 people out of work people on construction projects, 4,000 faa employees it is not effecting air traffic controllers but you have airport inspector who is are not getting paid and flying around the country on their own nickel waiting for congress to get its work done. it is outrageous and still efforts to try and have some kind of compromise that could maybe be voted unanimously what they call unanimous consent if both chambers to get some resolution to this impasse that kicks it until september really no guarantee they get that done
8:34 am
they have been trying to do something like that, last few days and you have things, like yes, they have this huge deal on the debt but they can't even -- it is sort of like they can't walk and chew gum at the same time this faa thing has been out there for seven years, they have had short term extensions for seven years if that doesn't show you what congress has not been able to do its work that is an example number one there are a lot of other things too, education reform languishing for years, no child left behind, trying to amend that, both parties thing it needs to be significantly changed, pretty good agreement on an outline for that bill, we are going to go another school year without having that done. there is energy, energy is something both parties say hey, we need to really do something about our energy situation they don't necessarily agree on details but could aagree on somethings like natural gas that hasn't even gotten through committee, there are a lot of
8:35 am
other things an appropriation bill, senate has only done one this year if you are a federal government employee and worried about government shut down as of today you probably would not have been getting your pay check now, with this deal, it is sort of like a two year budget that sort of clears the way for maybe having some peace, and not having any shut down show downs every few months there is a good chance because they agreed on spending levels they will agree with agreements on other bills. >> going back to the faa not just workers furloughed but they are not collecting a lot of this tax money it could be hundreds of millions of dollars you would thing with all the fighting just done over money that is one thing they would want to get done. >> it is pretty outrageous when you look at the tax revenue people collect on tickets, $30 million a day going to be a
8:36 am
billion two hundred million this month the dispute they are arguing over are rural airports entire program is $200 million they are talking about cutting $16 million, one day of these ticket revenues more than makes up for it but these rural airports some of them are outrageous the subsidies they get the one in nevada the home state of harry reed one this has only 500 passengers a year you and i and every other tax payer contributing $3,700 per passenger in subsidies, harry reed yesterday said i am willing to give it up it is outrageous but they could not get agreement from all the other senatorboth parties over this and there is a bigger fight it is over union rights, how sit going to be to unionize airline workers, railroad workers obama administration is moving regulation to make it easier for unions, stuff that can't get through congress
8:37 am
